Fall Into Chocolate Bliss With Godiva

Godiva Chocolate CUpcakes

Fall is here.  Cozy, yet?  Nothing is better during the arrival of Fall than watching the leaves change while eating your favorite chocolate.  Many of our readers have asked us to make a recommendation on “Best Chocolate”.  Here’s one of our favorites that we always fall for: Godiva.

Godiva offers a variety of timeless confections which will transport you into chocolate bliss.  We tested four of Godiva’s premiere confections: Chocolate Chunk Brownies, Carmel Brownies, Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels, and Godiva Cupcakes.

Our top pick: The Assorted Chocolate Cupcakes.  These delicious confections achieve the chocolaty bliss that most cupcakes only dream of having.  They are truly all-chocolate with every bite.  We especially loved the Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.  They are so chocolatey, you won’t be disappointed!

For chocolate lovers looking for a salty twist, Godiva Chocoiste Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels are great.  They are chocolatey through and through with a tinge of saltiness.  They come arrayed in a beautiful golden tin.  When you open the tin, a chocolatey aroma bursts forth.  Chocolate covered pretzels can’t get any better than this!

Our reviewers enjoyed the brownies as well.  Yet they looked chocolatier than they tasted.  We hope in the future Godiva will add some big chocolate chunks to them to give them that extra chocolate burst in keeping with the rest of their great products.

Rating: 4 Stars!  Very Good!  (Cupcakes and Pretzels)

Decadent Chocolate Pairings

Godiva Bear 2011 Valentino

Instead of any chocolate, why not give Godiva?  And instead of roses, why not give a romantic little bear to the one you love?  We recently sampled a trio of delight: Godiva 22 Piece Milk Chocolates, Godiva Hazelnut Coffee, and a Godiva Chocolate Torte.   This year, Godiva’s Exclusive Gund 2011 bear, Valentino, will add a romantic Parisian flare to any occasion.  He is cute, cuddly, and yes, wearing a red beret.  These gifts will even elate  the person who has everything.

Godiva 22 Piece Milk Chocolates come in a variety of flavors.  When you entertain dinner guests, we suggest offering these chocolates after dinner and pairing them with Godiva Hazelnut Coffee.  The fragrant Hazelnut aroma will fill the room with a sweet, nutty fragrance which will create pleasant memories and a desire to visit you again.  The great secret of all gourmet chefs is serving great coffee.

Godiva also makes decadent cakes and tortes which we suggest serving with homemade whipped cream and fresh fruit.  This is the way we enjoy them.  These chocolates are a cut above.

Best Chocolate Gifts Fall 2010

Godiva Chocolate Tea Party Basket

Autumn is nearing.  The  leaves on the trees are getting ready to show their spendorous rainbows of color.  This is one of our favorite times of year to get cozy with a great cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the arrival of Autumn.  What a better way to enjoy it than with a box of delicious chocolates?  Or what about a whole basket?  Godiva Chocolatier makes a Chocolate Tea Party Basket that will delight tea and coffee lovers alike.  This wonderful basket overflows with an ample variety of teatime treats, including a box of Godiva Milk Chocolates, Godiva Truffles, Godiva coffee, tea, Orange Cranberry bread mix, scone mix, Godiva chocolate chips to add to your breads or melt for dipping, and more.  We also appreciate that the Chocolate Tea Party Basket comes in a sturdy basket that will prove useful even after you have enjoyed and consumed all of the gifts it contains.

The 50 Piece Biscuit Gift Tin  also pairs perfectly with coffee or tea.  This gift tin contains an array of delicate, buttery biscuits topped with decadent Godiva chocolate.  We also tried the Mixed Berry And Almond Bark, which comes in a reusable tin.  The Mixed Berry And Almond Bark is a rich, dark chocolate candy filled with pieces of dried cherries, blueberries, rasbperries and almonds.
